Karan Johar's movie Kalank was declared a box-office debacle even though it was recorded biggest opener of 2019. But the film didn't run well post the opening even though had an ensemble cast including Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. During a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, Karan took the fall for Kalank's.

He said, "The person responsible for Kalank is me and no one else, I was the leader of that team. I think I got carried away with the film, and when Abhishek Verman had the idea of a palette that he wanted to give it and a certain vision, I was so sucked into that world that I lost complete objectivity. I gave everybody unnecessary wings to fly. That film had commendable talent with Abhishek, Alia, Varun, Sonakshi, Aditya, Sanju and Madhuri. I could have just helmed the film better."

But now reports are swirling about how Kalank's failure has lead to the delay in Karan's upcoming directorial Takht. But he squashed all rumours as he revealed that the reason Takht was moved from September to February due to logistic issues, date crunching issues and long commitment for the various actors featuring in his film. He further said, "How does the stress of one film affects the other film, when both are totally different feature films? Have you asked me? I am making Takht. I have been making it since last two years and will be making it for the next two years."

He also further stated that Takht is on a track and the filming will begin in February. Be also revealed how he is vastly excited and also very stressed about the same. Takht also stars Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor.
